5th Grade, Monroe Elementry
You signed Don't Laugh At Me, for me, at a conference back in Ontario CA several years ago. I used it with my 5th graders then, and they loved it!
I just wanted you to know that you have come to college with me. I earned my Ph.D. in special education in 2007; I am also helping to raise a granddaughter, and Elise is now 4 years old. I was recently hired at Pacific Oaks College and Children's School (POC) in Pasadena, California to teach teachers how to realign curriculum so that all levels of learners receive equal opportunities to learn in today's classrooms. The Pacific Oaks College and Children's School centers around social justice, and we love Steve Seskin! www.pacificoaks.edu/home
My college students are lucky enough to start each course that I teach with: Don't Laugh At Me. My colleagues are having a Book Share Fair and I am entering Don't Laugh At Me as my book share. I will let you know if we win! Thank you, Steve Seskin, for all that you do!
How far in advance do you set your travel schedule? Also, do you have a booking fee schedule that I can share with the Powers That Be here at POC?

We love you and love watching you work with our kids! Thank you again for using your wonderful gifts and talents with children. I already can't wait for next year!
Many thanks for being here. The song is amazing! We are going to adopt it as our new school song (while still keeping our "old" school song). Our students were so proud of what they accomplished.
It was a pleasure meeting you today and getting to see and hear the song our third graders put together with you at school. It was very humbling. Thank you!!
